Hippo, Capgemini and ASP4all win Partner of the Year for work with Dutch National Police at Computable Awards 2013
Hippo began working with the Dutch Police in 2012, when a political decision merged the 27 local Dutch police corps into one central, national police force. Together with the reorganization, the Dutch Police reinvented its digital communications, employing marketing strategies including highly localized relevance and personalization to engage citizens in an increasingly transparent and cooperative approach to fighting crime. With Hippo, the National Police consolidated over 360 individual websites into one new website www.politie.nl. This new website provides a seamless, centralized web experience, bringing locally-relevant and instantly updated content to citizens across web, mobile and social channels.
The Computable Awards are widely recognized as the most important IT awards in the Netherlands, held by leading Dutch IT Magazine Computable. Each year, nominees are selected per award category by an independent jury. Winners are selected by the jury in collaboration with readers, each affecting the final decision by 50%. The 2013 Computable Awards were held on Thursday, November 7th at the Huis ter Duin in Noordwijk. The Partner of the Year prize was awarded unanimously out of ten nominees.
